Meditation on Tuesdays at 4:00 at St. John’s. Please join us for 30 minutes of shared silence and “prayer of the heart,” an ancient meditative practice of the Christian tradition. All are welcome! We meditate sitting on chairs, though if you prefer to sit on the floor, feel free to bring a mat or cushion. If you are new to meditation, have questions or concerns, or would like more information, please contact Mother Kathleen.

St. John and St. Saviour:
PDFs of Mother Kathleen’s sermons and video recordings of Fr. Tim’s sermons are now available on St. Saviour’s website (; Fr. Tim’s videos are also available at St. John’s website at (

Confidential Prayer Chain: Unlike our published prayer lists, prayer requests that come into the Prayer Chain remain private to the prayer chain itself, which will pray devotedly for one week unless an updated request is made. If you’d like to know more about this or our Pastoral Care Team, please contact our office administrators or Mother Kathleen.

St. Saviour:
FREE Community Valentine Pot Luck Supper Tuesday, February 14 from 5 - 6:30 pm

to share with friends old and new. Beverages will be provided. ALL are welcome with or without a dish!

Holy Eucharist is celebrated on Wednesdays at noon in the Chapel, in a simple, non-musical service.  We plan to commemorate saints and seasons using the church’s published calendar, as well as focusing on healing for ourselves and for the world.

St. Mary & St. Jude:
Prayer Shawl Ministry, Thursdays at 10:00 a.m.
Contemplative Prayer Group: Tuesdays at 4:30, join Deacon John in exploring the practice of Christian meditation and contemplative prayer. Meetings will take place in St. Mary's Chapel and will include instruction and practice in this ancient form of prayer. While not required, recommended supplemental reading is Into the Silent Land: A Guide to the Practice of Contemplation by Martin Laird.
